Why are you running for school board?
I am passionate about public education and see a need for change on the current school board. I am frustrated with the current school board’s lack of responsiveness to our community and teachers. As a board member, I can fight to keep the focus of the district on the classroom and class sizes. I am also well-equipped to be a bridge between the district and our parents, teachers, City Council and community. With my experiences as a teacher, and as a parent in this district, I am uniquely qualified to be on the school board.
